Day 26 Pictures - Mesquite to Mineola, TX

Below are some of the pictures from day 26 that I was not able to upload due to a weak internet connection.

Some of Ladybird Johnson's wildflower beautification efforts alongside Texas roads.


This picture in a DQ reminded me of what the first Wheels trip might have looked like at one of their favorite stops.

This is the "Salt Palace" in Grand Saline, TX, home of the Morton Salt Co. and one of the largest salt mines in the world. The exterior of this building is made entirely of salt.

Here is a closeup of one of the blocks of salt from the "Salt Palace".

This picture gives you an idea of the size of the salt mine.

Grand Saline was also the home of adventurer Wiley Post, who died in a plane crash with Will Rogers.

In the church we stayed in in Mineola, we were treated to a spontaneous piano concert by Ken, a very accomplished musician.
